Bat For Lashes

Listen to Bat For Lashes’ New Song “Skin Songs”

What do pathologists, neurologists, stem cell researchers, and hospital surgeons have in common? They’re all recording an album, of course.

Okay, okay, so it’s not just medical nerds gathering around to see how sine waves match up with sound, but rather some seriously smart medical experts teaming up with UL musicians to create a collection of songs inspired by the body’s organs. Ghostpoet, Goldie, and Bat For Lashes are the first three artists to step up to the plate. When working with the medical experts, these musicians have learned “why a chosen organ works and fails” and how to create …

Whirr Announce New Album, Share “Mumble”

Nick Bassett is a busy guy. After leaving Deafheaven to play bass in Nothing, he later started a new shoegaze project called Whirr and, throughout all of this, toured. Now Whirr is releasing their second full-length, Sway. The LP, which was recorded by Sunbather producer Jack Shirley, drops September 23 via Graveface and can be pre-ordered here.

Whirr have shared “Mumble” off the album to prove that it will indeed be a succinct, celestial, doom-drenched piece of shoegaze. The song keeps things short, staying under three minutes, but stomps around with the soft but heavy padding of a …

Interpol El Pintor

Hear “All the Rage Back Home,” Interpol’s First Single Off ‘El Pintor’

On September 9, Interpol will drop their brand new album El Pintor via Matador Records. The ten-track LP has been something of a mystery so far, with the only audio clips available so far being live recordings from fans and professional cameras. But today, at long last, we get to hear a studio version of their first single, “All the Rage Back Home,” thanks to BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe.

El Pintor is the follow-up to 2010′s self-titled and is, surprisingly, only their fifth record to date. After smashing into the scene with the highly-praised classic Turn on the Bright

Naomi Punk Television Man

Naomi Punk Announce Tour, Stream “Firehose Face”

Olympia-based punk trio Naomi Punk are coming back to the surface in 2014 with their sophomore LP, Television Man, due out August 5 via Captured Tracks.

They’ve just shared the opening track “Firehose Face” and it doesn’t disappoint. Stream it below after the jump.

If you live on the west coast, be sure to catch them on tour with Parquet Courts and Blood Brothers. If not, stay tuned. More North American dates will be released soon.…


Florida Georgia Line Release “Dirt” Video, Launch Humanitarian Project

You don’t have to love country music to appreciate the work of Florida Georgia Line. In fact, you don’t have to have the slightest interest in the world of twang-laden music to find yourself toe-tapping along with any one of their many chart-topping singles. They’re part of that new age of country that might as well be considered pop or rock, and earlier today they released a killer new power ballad titled “Dirt.”

The first song to surface from Florida Georgia Line since the deluxe reissue of their debut album in 2013, “Dirt” is a powerful ballad about the stuff …

Blonde Redhead

Blonde Redhead’s “Dripping” Is The Summer Song You’ve Been Looking For

There are ten new summer playlists uploaded each day telling you which hits you’ll be blasting from your car stereo and which ones are perfect for holding that special person’s hand by the boardwalk. But there comes a time in the summer where even the happiest people need to put on a hat, walk under the trees’ shadows, and watch summer from a darker side of it all. That’s where Blonde Redhead come in.

The Brooklyn alt rock group are known for merging trippy rhythms, dream pop tones, and sharp guitar lines together for truly unique music. So it comes …

Usher Teams Up With Nicki Minaj On Latest Single, “She Came To Give It To You”

The first few days of work following an extended holiday weekend can be pretty rough. The coffee’s never strong enough, someone’s always asking way too many questions, and Friday seems like a distant dream. Pretty much everything is a struggle, and it’s enough to drive a guy (or girl) wild.

But fear not, fellow desk jockeys, for I have just the thing to turn your Tuesday around! Following the release of “Good Kisser” and “I Don’t Mind,” earlier in the day, Usher joined forces with Nicki Minaj to unleash the newest must-hear jam of the summer. …

Busta Rhymes and Eminem Want You to “Calm Down”

What do you get when you match up two of raps most diverse and quick lyricists? You get a six-minute-long rap anthem by the name of “Calm Down” that hits on everything from social media, to Clive Davis, to music critics and back around to Fahrvergnügens. Yes. The Volkswagen van. Only Busta Rhymes would rap about a van and make it work.

Speed isn’t the point here, as both of the veterans excel in their sporadic, smart rhymes that even make sense. Even producer Scoop Deville has time to sample “Jump Around” by House of Pain. This six-minute rap battle …


Anberlin Stream “Atonement”

The promotional run towards the release of Anberlin‘s final studio album continued this afternoon with the premiere of a new track titled “Atonement.”

There is no area of music that Anberlin gets wrong, but they have always had a certain knack for writing sweeping, atmospheric ballads that connect with thousands. “Atonement” is the latest track to continue this trend, with lush instrumentation accompanying a relatively melancholy Stephen Christian. You can stream the song, in full, at the end of this post.

Anberlin can be found on Warped Tour this summer, followed by a string of farewell performances in the …


Ice Cube Streams “Drop Girl” Featuring 2 Chainz and Redfoo

Ice Cube has been everywhere in recent weeks while promoting his role in 22 Jump Street, but this morning he’s returned to our headlines with something he rarely delivers these days: New music.

“Drop Girl” samples a classic Ice Cube track to create a modern club anthem that seems to exist solely to make girls shake their ass. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, and with both 2 Chainz and Redfoo adding their signature flavors to the mix I think it goes without saying the song will find at least some traction at radio. You can stream the …
